My 17 year old son addicted to legal highs

Posted by Marymay on 18 April 2016.

My son has been taking legal highs since the age of 15 i only noticed as the mood swings was getting out of control for me I kept finding little sachets of this chemical not for human consumption on it so I didn't seem to fink much as I've never seen this kind of thing before only yesterday I cleaned his room and found a unlabelled bottle of this red syrup so I googled syrup looking drugs and before my eyes I can clearly see and read that this is a combination of cough syrup mixed with codeine I'm extremely worried and would like any advice than you
